The Taikofon FeelSound player is based on a Finnish innovation that has an international patent pending. One of the inventors and the father of Taikofon is Jukka Linjama, who has a PhD in sound and vibration technology and has also worked for Nokia. Jukka wanted to create something new that would help his wife Mirja, an occupational therapist, in her work with severely disabled and autistic children. This wish gave birth to a soothing, vibrating mattress. Through many stages and a great deal of teething troubles, the FeelSound player that is now known as Taikofon was born. Mirja and her colleagues have already used Taikofon in their work with good results.
Taikofon is not a loudspeaker, but has inside it a vibrating Flexound Xperience module, an instrument that creates a unique multisensory experience. Taikofon is a fantastic Finnish innovation and the first member of the Flexound Systems FeelSound product family. There would be no Taikofon were it not for the help of the child therapists who tested it and the delighted help and feedback of their clients. Let our main goal be the happiness and wellbeing of children from here on!
